Construction of an energy company and a local currency between City Hall, citizenship and economic activities with the purpose of improving buildings and community capacities
CASE STAGE: Just started
LOCATION: Viladecans, Barcelona (Spain)
TRANSITION CONNECTION: No
GOVERNANCE: Not defined
The challenge is to involve the community in the energy transition process. From the management of the electricity and gas supply points, savings will be managed, and energy efficiency and renewable energy projects will be developed as well. This project will establish a new network of relationships and capabilities.
DOMAINS: Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency, Town planning, Urbanism and Housing, Education, Raising awareness about sustainability, climate change, healthy living, environmental issues, etc., Health, Participatory Democracy and Planning, Economy
MiT note: Reduction of energy consumption with innovative tools (local currency). Interesting for phase 2 (framework and tools for collaboration; just started). Suitable for pilot (if this kind of initiative/context is considered relevant since it is very specific; prospects for continuity?).
